PILE TESTING SERVICES
Alongside the installation of piles we offer a range of pile testing services including pile integrity, static load, concrete cube and concrete slump tests.
Integrity tests offer a low-cost quality control method to detect defects along the pile shaft and has become an industry standard test carried out on almost all piling projects.
Static load tests can be carried out prior to or during the construction of bearing piles. As well as providing quality assurance they can also facilitate design savings through the utilisation of reduced factors of safety.
Concrete is always sourced from reputable suppliers conforming to BS EN 8500 and as part of this regular compliance testing in the form of cube tests are carried out. This is carried out routinely on projects but should further cube tests be required this can be arranged through Central Piling. Slump tests are also carried out by Central Piling daily for all projects as a quality control.
